This past weekend I gutted the network at a client and redesigned it physically and logically. We physically separated the Voice and Data networks and moved the LAN and WLAN onto separate subnets.
We added new switches and a new T1 router for voice. This increased the speed of the data network by 10 x and removed about a dozen workgroup switches and two loops.
Here are some before and after pics.
This is the before picture of the network, wiring, voice & data networks, and the LAN & WLAN.
